Setting off from Becket's Park the Northampton Mile will take in the sights of the newly finished Marina and is set to be an incredible event. All the money raised by the public will help people living unimaginably tough lives right here on our doorstep, across the rest of the UK and in some of the world's poorest countries.
Saints Players Scott Armstrong and Martin Roberts both encouraged local people to get involved in the Northampton Mile by wearing Sport Relief T Shirts. "It's all about having fun rather than getting fit. You don't have to run you can walk the course if you want to," Armstrong commented.
Chris Rockall from Northampton Leisure Trust said: "It's fantastic that so many people of Northampton are gathering together to show their support for Sport Relief 2012. But we want this to be the best Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile yet - so raise your game, enter the Northampton Mile today and join the rest of the nation to raise plenty of cash for an incredible cause!"
Participants can choose their own distance, from 1, 3 or 6 miles, and can complete it in any way they fancy. From teeny tots with their mums and dads, to super sprinters up against the clock, there's something for everyone on the big day.
Sport Relief has a unique history of dedicated people doing extraordinary things to go the extra mile.
Last September, David Walliams started Sport Relief off with an epic splash when he completed the BT Sport Relief Challenge: Walliams vs The Thames, and there'll be even more amazing celebrity challenges to get the whole nation geared up for the Sport Relief Weekend on Friday, March 23rd to Sunday, March 25th, 2012.
